US Marshals arrest NH fugitive
PORTSMOUTH - United States Marshals arrested a New Hampshire man on multiple warrants in Gardiner, Maine on Thursday.
Portsmouth police believed David J. Wilson, 27, with no fixed address, was in custody in New Hampshire when warrants were issued for his arrest earlier in the week, but they said that turned out not to be the case.
Members of the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force, Maine, arrested Wilson on Thursday and he is currently being held as a fugitive from justice in the Kennebec County Jail, according to Portsmouth Police.
Extradition proceedings will have to take place in Maine before Wilson is returned to New Hampshire to face nine charges related to at least two armed robberies.
Portsmouth police issued warrants for Wilson on two counts of armed robbery, one count of robbery and six counts of receiving stolen property last week.
Wilson is the suspect in a February robbery in the Worth parking lot in Portsmouth during which he allegedly assaulted a woman and forcefully removed her purse.
He is also being charged with a January armed robbery at the Tedeschi's Food Mart, now Sam's Food Stores.
On January 29 around 5:15 p.m., police allege Wilson entered the store armed with what appeared to be a handgun and demanded money from the cashier. He fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.
On Feb. 1 around 8:20 p.m. a woman was approached by a male suspect, who police allege was Wilson, assaulted her and forcefully removed her purse. Police allege that during the struggle, Wilson struck the woman multiple times in the head with what was later determined to be a pellet gun, causing injuries.
On April 2, Portsmouth police executed a search warrant on a vehicle that had been impounded as a result of officers finding Wilson and a female inside of it. Both Wilson and the female were wanted on separate warrants and arrested, police said.
As a result of the vehicle search, Wilson is facing six counts of receiving stolen property.
